Over 500 Pupils in Abuja Forced to Learn Under Collapsed Roofs

ABUJA, Nigeria – A report by Tracka, a procurement non-profit organization, has revealed dire conditions at the Kuchichacha LEA Primary School in Abuja, Nigeria’s capital city. According to the report, over 500 students are currently attending classes under structures with damaged or collapsed roofs.

These unsafe conditions come on top of another challenge – a lack of qualified teachers at the school. The report highlights concerns from parents who are withdrawing their children due to the dilapidated buildings and inadequate staffing.

This is not an isolated incident. In February, Sahara Reporters documented a similar situation at the LEA Primary School in Dei Dei, where students were pictured learning under a tree due to a lack of classrooms.

These reports raise serious questions about the state of education infrastructure in Nigeria’s capital city. The deplorable conditions pose a safety risk to students and hinder their ability to learn effectively.

The reports have sparked calls for action from education rights advocates and citizens alike. Many are urging the FCT Administration and the Federal Ministry of Education to address the immediate needs of the Kuchichacha LEA Primary School and prioritize investment in improving educational facilities across the country.
